Interesting! I always like to read what you have to say.

Do you work as a journalist, or have a background in that field?

Thanks for the comments, folks.

I have no journalism experience, and have never written "professionally" - strictly amateur.

Obviously not, or he'd keep each post to 500 words max and edit the quotes into little snippets. I like it the way it is, though!*

* although it could use subheads ... :-)

Says the journalist!

Subheads are a thought...but it kind of breaks up the flow, and it's a bit textbookish for me. I use chapter breaks sometimes in the Really Long essays.

Could use more paragraphing, too. Composing in Word, the paragraphs all look really short, but then in the narrow blog column they show up as big long chunks of text. Oh well...I'm afraid my style's a bit too dense to be easily read on computer screens!
